Remembering all who died, all who served, all who stayed home and looked after things.
Remembering my grandfather in law wounded at the Battle of Somme WWI
Remembering my Uncle who flew Liberators in WWII receiving the Victoria Cross, another uncle who was a gunner for 5 years in the RAF
Remembering my father in law who drove trucks in Europe, saw the camps and would never speak of his experiences
Remembering my aunt who was a "Bomb Girl" in a munitions plant in Toronto
Remembering my mother in law at home with 4 children under 3 and a husband in Europe
Remembering my father who joined the Merchant Navy and travelled up and down the Eastern seaboard
Remembering my mother who was one of the group of women who were "feminists" before their time by serving in the Air Force doing "men's work" or as their motto said "We Serve so Men Can Fly"
Today please remember these people and so many others like them who gave up so much for our freedoms
I will be remembering my family at the Legion Service today
Lest we Forget
